Friends, we're finally ready for you. Over some months now, I've had the pleasure of supporting co-op entrepreneur Greg Brodsky in the development of a new kind of accelerator just for co-ops.

Start.coop is officially open for applications for the inaugural class. If you know someone who would be interested in applying for $10,000 in cash plus mentorship, they can learn more here: start.coop/press-releases/

@ntnsndr Great news. What's the geographical coverage? Global?

@ntnsndr I'd like to know what @aral thinks of this approach. Is it sufficiently different from regular startup accelerators to support a healthy society?

@zatnosk @aral We hope so. We'll be experimenting with several financing models. But in all cases, the recipient will be a member of the investing organization, like a cooperative bank.

social.coop is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
